SEDATION DENTISTRY - ADVANCED FAMILY DENTISTRY
Many dental patients experience heightened anxiety when they visit their dentist. Advanced Family Dental is happy to provide you dental sedation for a more relaxing experience. Advanced Family Dentistry in Coeur d’Alene offers nitrous oxide for our dental patients, so you will have little to no memory of your treatments.
Sedation dentistry isn't only for dental patients who are nervous about dental procedures. Sedation dentistry can help dental patients who have difficulty controlling a gag reflex, experience pain because of sensitive teeth, or do not respond well to numbing medications. Sedation dentistry also allows Dr. Mosby to perform several dental procedures in just one appointment.
Sedation dentistry with nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) is a very safe way for you to feel relaxed during your dental procedure. Nitrous oxide is not addictive, is easily inhaled, and leaves the body very quickly. You might even leave the dental office more relaxed than when you arrived for your sedation dentistry.
The TAP oral appliance is a small, customized device that fits the oral structures of the patient. It is designed to push the jaw forward so that the tongue and throat muscles cannot collapse and block the airway during sleep. Dr. Mosby believes in the TAP appliance because it is a non-invasive, easy to use product with a 95% success rate with sleep apnea. While this product may not work for every patient, it is the ideal way to prevent apnea episodes.
If you think you may be suffering from this sleep disorder, do not wait to visit a dentist. Your body may be suffering from lack of sleep, which can affect your life in ways that you don’t realize. At Advanced Family Dentistry in Coeur d’Alene, ID, we are determined to improve your quality of life through peaceful and sound sleeping.
